Last week the children’s book podcast Just One More Book talked to Diane Greenseid about her contribution to the Robert’s Snow art fundraiser. Diane is the illustrator of Teeny Weeny Bop by Margaret Read MacDonald and Waynetta and the Cornstalk by Helen Ketteman, and she has a great blog, too. She painted her snowflake back in July—children’s book illustrators are always having to conjure up different seasons—and she discussed the process and showed her sketches in this fun entry. Listen to the podcast to hear her talk about Robert’s Snow, working under pressure, “singing colors,” and more.
We’ll be posting more about other Albert Whitman illustrators participating in Robert’s Snow as they’re profiled around the web. The auctions to buy these terrific snowflakes and raise money for cancer research begins November 19th.
